At a quick glance you could be forgiven for thinking these images were just a display of everyday items, but the KFC bucket, the crown and even the toolbox pictured here are all, in fact, edible cakes.

Every spanner, chicken nugget, sewing needle and fishing hook has been made as part of a competition entry by the staff at North Devon Hospital.

Meg Davis, Nigel Howes and Kayleigh Maurice created the sweet treats for the "Salon Culinaire", a global culinary competition that pits professional chefs against each other.

Mrs Davis said it took upwards of 40 hours to create such a masterpiece and there is something for everyone, from a jewellery box for the girls to tool boxes for the boys.

"I do it as a hobby really – although I do enjoy it," she said.

"I always choose novelty themes for a bit of fun.

"It's an intricate thing – I usually make twice as much as I need for the finished product.

"But I enjoy the reaction they get."

The range of cakes varies from a giant lobster and KFC bucket to a sewing and tool kit where each and every needle and thread is edible.
